    • A.

      Property that is created through creativity and intellect such as stories and poems.

    • B.

      Property belonging to a school that helps students to learn.

    • D.

      A term used when no one knows to whom property belongs to.

    Correct Answer
    A. Property that is created through creativity and intellect such as stories and poems.
    Explanation
    The term intellectual property refers to property that is created through creativity and intellect, such as stories and poems. This type of property is protected by copyright laws, which give the creator exclusive rights to use and distribute their work. It is different from physical property because it is intangible and exists in the form of ideas or expressions. Intellectual property is important as it encourages innovation and creativity by providing legal protection and incentives for creators to share their ideas without fear of them being stolen or copied.

  • 3. 

    It is ok for a student to use a picture that belongs to someone else in a project:

    • A.

      When you have the permission of the picture's owner.

    • B.

      When you show who the picture belongs to in your request

    • C.

      When you have permission and you show who the picture belongs to in your project.

    • D.

      It is never ok to use pictures that belong to someone else.

    Correct Answer
    A. When you have the permission of the picture's owner.
    Explanation
    When using a picture that belongs to someone else in a project, it is important to have the permission of the picture's owner. This means that the student has obtained explicit consent from the owner to use their picture. This ensures that the student is not infringing on any copyright laws and is respecting the rights of the picture's owner. By having permission, the student can legally and ethically incorporate the picture into their project without any issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is not intellectual property

    • A.

      A poem

    • B.

      An invention

    • C.

      A picture

    • D.

      A house

    Correct Answer
    D. A house
    Explanation
    A house is not considered intellectual property because it is a tangible asset that can be owned and possessed, but it does not fall under the category of intellectual creations or ideas. Intellectual property refers to intangible creations of the mind, such as inventions, artistic works, and designs, which are protected by laws to ensure that the creator has exclusive rights over them. In contrast, a house is a physical structure that is typically protected by property laws rather than intellectual property laws.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    To copyright a poem, story, or picture means to:

    • A.

      Take ownership and control of who can use the work for a certain amount of time.

    • B.

      To copy the work completely without making mistakes.

    • C.

      To take ownership of the work and who can use it forever.

    • D.

      Give permission to others to copy a work free of charge.

    Correct Answer
    A. Take ownership and control of who can use the work for a certain amount of time.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Take ownership and control of who can use the work for a certain amount of time." When someone copyrights a poem, story, or picture, they are asserting their legal right to control who can use the work and how it can be used. This allows the creator to protect their intellectual property and potentially profit from its use. However, copyright protection is not indefinite and typically lasts for a certain amount of time, after which the work may enter the public domain.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How long can a novel be copyrighted?

    • A.

      Forever

    • B.

      While the author is alive.

    • C.

      Until 70 years after the author dies.

    • D.

      Exactly 20 years.

    Correct Answer
    C. Until 70 years after the author dies.
    Explanation
    A novel can be copyrighted until 70 years after the author dies. This means that the author's exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, and display their work are protected for their lifetime, and an additional 70 years after their death. After this period, the novel enters the public domain and can be freely used by anyone. This ensures that the author's intellectual property is protected and allows them or their estate to benefit from their work for a significant period of time.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Violating copyright law on a picture or other intellectual property can lead to:

    • A.

      Being sent to jail

    • B.

      Your parents and the school have to pay the author money

    • C.

      The only consequence of breaking copyright law is getting a bad grade.

    • D.

      There are no consequences to breaking copyright law.

    Correct Answer
    B. Your parents and the school have to pay the author money
    Explanation
    If someone violates copyright law on a picture or other intellectual property, the consequence can be that their parents and the school have to pay the author money. This means that the person who committed the violation may not face immediate personal consequences, such as going to jail or receiving a bad grade, but their actions can result in financial liability for their parents and the school. This emphasizes the importance of respecting copyright laws to avoid legal and financial repercussions.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A copyright on a picture goes into effect:

    • A.

      When the government says it is in effect.

    • B.

      30 days after the picture is created.

    • C.

      As soon as the picture is created.

    • D.

      As soon as the picture is created unless by a student less than 18 years old.

    Correct Answer
    C. As soon as the picture is created.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "As soon as the picture is created." This means that once a picture is created, it automatically receives copyright protection. There is no need for any additional steps or government involvement for the copyright to be in effect.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is not included when giving credit to the author of a story or picture:

    • A.

      The author's name

    • B.

      The year the story or picture was created

    • C.

      The company that published the story or picture

    • D.

      The age of the author

    Correct Answer
    D. The age of the author
    Explanation
    When giving credit to the author of a story or picture, the age of the author is not included. The author's name is always mentioned to acknowledge their work. The year the story or picture was created is important to provide context and historical information. The company that published the story or picture is credited for their role in making it available to the public. However, the age of the author is not relevant in giving credit and does not impact the recognition of their work.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If a picture or story is in the public domain one can:

    • A.

      Do whatever they wish with the picture or story without giving credit to its creator

    • B.

      Do whatever they wish as long as its in a public place

    • C.

      Only use the story or picture in a way that does not make money

    • D.

      Only use the picture or story in a school.

    Correct Answer
    A. Do whatever they wish with the picture or story without giving credit to its creator
    Explanation
    If a picture or story is in the public domain, it means that the copyright protection has expired or it was never eligible for copyright in the first place. Therefore, anyone can use the picture or story for any purpose without seeking permission from or giving credit to its creator. This includes using it commercially, modifying it, distributing it, or displaying it publicly.
